IP Masquerading Doesn't Work with Linux-2.0.6; What Did I Do?

Hi All,

What did I do? Now I upgraded from Linux-2.0.3 to 2.0.6. Everything
works except IP Masquerading!

When I do an

ipfwadm -M -l

I get masquerading entries showing that my LAN clients are going to
some Internet host(s), but nothing comes back to my clients.
If I try to "head -2 /proc/net/snmp," I get counts that indicate a
number of "OutNoRoutes." This worked fine under 2.0.3. I looked
on the ftp.xos.nl site, but I do not see any new IP Masq software. The
Linux-2.0.6 Changes file doesn't seem to indicate any IP Masq
changes. This is probably something unique to my configuration, but I
would appreciate any suggestions. Has anybody else noticed this?

Please help!
